White House spokesperson Sarah Sanders confirmed that Trump will sign the bill that avert another government shut down. However, as the bill doesn’t include the full sum of the funding that Trump demands for the border wall, he’s going to declare national emergency.
Sanders said “President Trump will sign the government funding bill, and as he has stated before, he will also take other executive action – including a national emergency.”
Top Democrat in the Congress, House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi said she might file a legal challenge to Trump’s action and “that’s an option”. Senate Democrat leader Chuck Schumer also criticized Trump of a “gross abuse of the power of the presidency.”
